Lemont FPD American LaFrance engine

This from Matt Schumann as an addition to the posting of the Lemont FPD:

For an historical perspective Рhere is a picture of the Lemont ALF pumper after the Pierce Refurb and shortly before it being sold by the department.  The guys loved this rig even in its last days where it was not able to pump well.

Glenwood FD update

This from Brad Steinweg:

Just wanted to submit an update for Glenwood. The 2000 expedition listed as 432 is now 424 and no longer runs medical calls. It is used as station 1’s utility vehicle. The new 432 is a 2010 Ford expedition equipped with medical supplies and is now our EMS response unit out of station 1.
